Edit an Access Group

Tenable is retiring access groups. Moving forward, Tenable recommends that you use permissions to manage user and group access to resources on your Tenable Vulnerability Management instance and that you convert your existing access groups into permission configurations. For more information, see Transition to Permission Configurations.

Required User Role: Administrator

You can edit rules for an existing access group, as well as add or remove users and user groups assigned to the access group.

Note: You cannot edit the name or rules for the system-generated All Assets access group.

To edit an access group:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the Menu button.

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane, click Settings.

    The Settings page appears.

  3. Click the Access Groups tile.

    The Access Groups page appears. This page contains a table that lists the access groups to which you have access.

  4. In the access groups table, click the access group you want to edit.

    The Edit Access Group page appears.

  5. In the General section, in the Name box, type a new name for the access group.

  6. In the Users & Groups section, configure user permissions for the access group.
  7. Click Save.

    Tenable Vulnerability Management updates the access group with your changes. The Access Groups page appears.

    Note: When you create or edit an access group, Tenable Vulnerability Management may take some time to assign assets to the access group, depending on the system load, the number of matching assets, and the number of vulnerabilities.

    You can view the status of this assignment process in the Status column of the access groups table on the Access Groups page.
